It was March of 2014 when Political Action Committee of End Citizens United was formed. End Citizens United is funded by grassroots donors. These people are on a mission to counter Citizens United—an organization that is a danger to the American society according to them. The members of the committee want to show to press, voters, candidates, and elected officials that billionaires cannot buy the US elections. The aim of the End Citizens United is to form a coalition which would reform the finance structure and pressurize elected officials to do the same. End Citizens United wants to get rid of Big Money involved in American Politics and change the political system that is vulnerable to rigging. To do that, PAC wants to finish Citizens United and role of money in the politics of United States. PAC is using members of the grassroots level to show their power and elect pro-reforms candidates on endcitizensunited.org.
End Citizens United was supporting Democrat candidates in the 2016 elections. These candidates were the ones who are against Citizens United, and they are interested in the campaign’s reforms in the financial system. During the elections, SuperPAC and Koch Brothers were involved in the rigging. They used the dark money to buy senators and representatives. End Citizens United was formed in August 2015. Within a year, the group raised more than two million dollars with the help of small donors. It was far less than the target of thirty million dollars.
End Citizens United is against a court decision which allowed Citizens United to operate. They want to pass a constitutional amendment that would reverse the decision. Dark money and strong political action committees were used by Citizens United in politics. End Citizens United managed to get a petition signed by many people which are demanding US Congress to pass the desired legislation on alternet.org. The number of group’s supporters is expected to increase as another alliance “Ready for Hillary” is gaining momentum.
By the August of 2015, more than ten Democrat candidates joined End Citizens United. The candidates included prominent names like Michael Bennet and Russ Feingold. Both of them are senators of Colorado and Wisconsin respectively. End Citizens United Member Carbo said that group wants to elect those people that are interested in changing the laws on endcitizensunited.org. The candidates would stand up against Citizens United and work to reform the financial system. Carbo further said that the group would also support candidates that are bothered by Koch Brothers and big money groups. End Citizens United created an independent section during 2016. It supported direct mailers, polling, and television advertisements of the candidates. End Citizens United is devoted to getting a constitutional amendment passed which would reverse the court’s decision of allowing Citizens United to work.
